Taylor and I visited his family in Kentucky over New Years, so I thought I would share some of the fun things we did! Kentucky has the cutest and most quaint little towns, and all of the old houses look like gingerbread houses, everything is so beautiful!
Kentucky is a pretty country state, but after a little research we found that there are so many things to do and visit! There are so many places that are one of a kind and that you wouldn’t be able to find anywhere else. I was so obsessed with the things we did, saw, and ate so I had to share them with you guys.
Taylor’s mom lives in Stanford, which is a TINY town about an hour outside of Lexington. Stanford was still decorated for Christmas over New Years so it was absolutely beautiful! There are a few places downtown that I love to visit every time we are there, one of them being a boutique of course. Morgan’s on Main is located right in the middle of downtown Stanford and has the cutest clothes that are on trend. The soap store is just across the street and it is filled with homemade soaps, body lotions, sugar scrubs and lots more that are all made locally from goat milk. I use their sugar scrub religiously in place of lotion while in the bath and it moisturizes my legs far better than any lotion I have ever used!
The food pictured below is also from a local place in Stanford called the Bluebird Cafe and is SO good. Taylor went the healthy route while I said ehhhh we’re on vacation I’ll eat whatever I want, our New Years resolution is to eat healthy 24/7 so pray for us!
We visited Berea, Kentucky, which is a cute little art town where we went to the Kentucky Artisan Center and everything inside was handmade by artists from all over the state, so neat!
Taylor was obsessed with these two little things he found at the Artisan center he just had to have them. They are handmade by an artist from KY and that is actually a real corn cob stuck in the top of the jug head (we named him Bruce) pictured below. On another note, Taylor is actually the cutest thing you have ever seen right? I love it when we go places and he actually finds stuff he wants because that is so rare. I could find something I want no matter where we go, it’s a woman thing!
We took this picture in downtown Berea and I think it was literally 25 degrees. I’ve also gotten a few questions on this vest I’m wearing, it came from Martin’s in Anniston, AL! I love it because I have been able to match it with so many different outfits and dress it both up and down, and it was only $24.99! I will link these velvet clogs below, they are Sbicca and are way more comfortable than they look!
I have never seen anything like this pottery farm, nor did I even know pottery farms were a thing! Tater Knob Pottery is located a few miles outside of downtown Berea and is one of the coolest things I have ever seen, they have anything you can think of inside their shop. Everything is homemade and they will even do demonstrations for you to watch while they make something!
Our last little visit was a distillery in Danville, KY. I swear there is a distillery located in every town in the state probably, they are EVERYWHERE. This one was called Wilderness Trail and is fairly new, they are still letting their whiskey mature. This distillery was available for touring and the offices, as well as gift shop and tasting bar were in this old plantation home that was on the land. I was completely obsessed with how antique the house was!
I can’t wait to visit again and find so many more adventures, there is seriously nothing like going on a trip with the person you love and making memories together!
